Every Student Succeeds Act allows states and local districts to develop plans addressing standards (what children are required to learn), testing, school and district accountability (including school ratings), and special help for struggling schools and students. There are still federal requirements by which states must abide. However, in many areas, ESSA hands decision-making authority to states and local districts. ESSA Topics for Discussion: Accountability, Assessment, Education of the Whole Child, Federal Programs, and Teacher & Leader Development.
